I was listening to some old comedy by the late Bill Hicks last night, and one thing he said had me on the floor laughing.
He was approached by some big, hulky guys after an engagement.
“Hey buddy. We’re Christians, and we didn’t like what you said.”
So forgive me.
Keep this in mind.
I have engraved it inside, and will call it out at every opportunity from now on. It will be a default, standard response to people who lack any curiosity, compassion or capacity for humility and humor, the ones who call themselves Christians, but have missed most of the major points of Jesus’ message.
I found one video that has a version of the delivery, but it’s not the one I heard last night.
Warning! Bill Hicks is pretty raunchy. Not for children or the sensitive.
